RVGS has been successful in pivoting during COVID and moving all our events to an online platform, maintaining services for our members while keeping them safe. Each time a class or event is offered on Zoom, it requires one to two Zoom hosts. Unfortunately, only a few people have stepped forward to assist with this job and the many events that are offered every month are falling on their shoulders. To continue to offer our full slate of online programming, we need more volunteers. No Zoom experience is necessary; we will train you! The job is not difficult, but you should feel comfortable on a computer.
Education Committee Members
Education Committee members coordinate educational activities of the Society, primarily focusing on classes, free programs, and seminars. If you have a strong interest in genealogy education, this is the committee for you!
Quilt Committee Members
Quilt Committee members are responsible for preserving and displaying the Society’s quilt collection, and providing educational programs that focus on the relevance of quilts and other heirlooms to family history and genealogy.
Scholarship Committee Members
Scholarship Committee members are responsible for administering the Society’s annual high school scholarship program. Duties include reviewing submitted applications, selecting a successful recipient, and monitoring the overall parameters and funding of the program. This committee meets approximately four times per year and currently has an opening for a member volunteer.
